For the city of Budapest, the heterotopia that I chose to focus on is in fact a temporary heterotopia. The chosen heterotopia is the Sziget Festival, a musical and cultural festival that has taken place during one week in August every year since 1993. The location for the festival is an island just north of Margaret Island on the Danube River named Óbuda Island ( Óbudai-sziget). While the Sziget Festival originally started out as a student event, it has now become among the top 10 best festivals in all of Europe.
The following images are of the book I made that highlight the important elements of Budapest and discuss why the Sziget Festival is a heterotopia.
